I've said before that the Nip Drivers are friggin' great, if you'll remember, and "Oh Blessed Freak Show" is one of the greatest hardcore LPs of all time. Not quite up there with "Tied Down" and "Get It Away", necessarily, but not as far back as you were thinking, either. Hard to believe that this came out on Enigma, the worst record label ever (or would be, had Limited Potential never existed).
Really, what could be better than a cover of "Have You Never Been Mellow?" (listed on both the sleeve and the label as "Have You Ever Been Mellow", so that's what I'm sticking with here), other than a 40-second version of Duran Duran's "Rio" that nicks the opening riff from "Nervous Breakdown", of course. Between Mike Webber's madness and Kurt Schellenbach's guitars, there's some sort of insanity jumping out of the grooves on almost every track here. Although I ripped 12 tracks I'm only gonna post eight, so let me know if I've left off one of your favorites-- you never know, you might get lucky.
